The late former Indian president APJ Abdul Kalam has inspired an entire generation of Indians. In keeping with the tradition, the makers of upcoming Tamil film KO 2 have decided to have a tribute song for Kalam. The song, called Unnai Maatrinaal, is inspired from several of Kalam's popular quotes.

"Kalam's quotes have inspired me over the years. This song is based on his quotes, but we never planned it as a tribute. It was only after his demise that we decided to make it a tribute from our whole team," said the film's director Sharath Mandva.

Unnai Maatrinaal will be used as the title track of Ko 2, which features Simhaa and Nikki Galrani in the lead roles. The single will be released on Saturday on the occasion of Independence Day. The film's shooting, which is currently taking place here, is nearing completion.
